Sabayon freezes when graphics acceleration is on.

Postby NewCarScent » Sun Feb 17, 2008 7:56

For some reason when I turn on the accelerator and do something like move a window, my entire system freezes, I can't even restart X. I also checked the md5 and it was good. It doesn't freeze when acceleration is off.

My computer model is an Acer Aspire 5315. Also, on other distros like Ubuntu my graphics card was blacklisted, is it possible that it is the same here? I doubt the fix would work since this is Gentoo based.

See 3D desktop and the compiz / Fusion fox for your specific graphics card in the wiki / forums or the one solution posted by LXNAY.
Think 3.4F had this with both ati and nvidia cards.

Running the suggested fixes should solve this for you.
